About Simply Music Piano

img_1775Piano lessons are taught using the Simply Music Piano method, a revolutionary and engaging way to learn to play the piano!

In the same way that we all learn to speak years before we learn to read and write, Simply Music Piano temporarily delays music reading and immerses students in the experience of immediately playing great-sounding music. 

Students are introduced to a variety of unique playing-based concepts that unfold directly onto the keyboard. The result of this is that students learn to play the piano quickly, easily and naturally.  Once students are playing the piano comfortably and have a solid understanding of the keyboard, music reading is introduced.  With this foundational knowledge and unique approach, students are set to become strong readers.

My students love being able to play the piano right away, from their very first lessons, which keeps them excited about learning and motivated to read music when they are ready.   This is a far more natural approach than how piano has been traditionally taught!
